for syria. china cannot recently with a four-point plan. did you take this seriously? if so, could this be part of the new normal, china looking at a crisis the west is unable to solve far from its shores and saying, we have a position to take and could play a role on this? >> on to the back row. thank you for your brevity, folks. >> early in the discussion, you had asked about the dispute for the islands. your response was the chinese response was part of a long-term plan. in recent years, we have seen china make tremendous efforts certainly in the western hemisphere and africa to build an infrastructure to gain access of raw materials. at the same time, we have also seen them a tremendous efforts to build military to military relations. my question for the panel is, is that military dimension just an effort to protect economic interests or is it some part of a long-term plan to help lay the foundations for their assent to the position as a global power? >> one last gentleman and what neil diamond would call the tree people, hot august night. this gentleman. run the microphone to
about this? you look what they did and the syria war, in which was they had in 2006, you never heard word one about it before they did it. why are they vocal about this? there's three reasons why they have been so vocal. one, it was designed to motivate the rest of the world, and i think, by the way, if you, you know, we know from our emphasis regarding the idea that the europeans would have adopted the sanctions they did like a boycott on iranian oil if they didn't they the alternative was they would strike voluntarily, and to think that would have happened without the israeli, quote, motivation," is not realistic. the second reason they do it is because they are getting the world ready not to be surprised. if diplomacy fails, and the third reason is to get the public ready. that reflecting their reality, but in answer to the question, we've, you know, you've -- we've not had conversations with others that i'm aware of that would deal with that, but i note for you that david cameron made statements saying, you know, also repeated the words "all options on the table," we want deploam

[applause] like america, i am awash in debt it is time to make good on those obligations to each year on the panel, who i'm honored to present. i have had the pleasure of hearing at dozens of universities in the boston area. i am telling you a way overdue invitation to our counsel downtown. the professor is a senior fellow at the sovran center at brookings institution, a distinguished former adviser to my current adviser to many government agencies, u.s. leaders, and diplomats, and a prolific and best-selling author let me quote from the top of his website at the university of maryland
approach. and then there's the issue of syria. please say some words about what you see as the next steps with regard to iran, how do we see that unfolding in the time ahead, and then what's the way forward with syria? >> yeah. three things. one, you know, the arab spring turned out to be less spring. probably the better term is the arab awakening, and we're going to go through springs and winters and summers and falls, and it's going to vary country to country, and it's going to take a long time. but look, it was inevitable, unavoidable and actually a good thing that the people of the arab world should start taking some responsibility for their future. and there's just no going back. and it is very much in our interest how these awakenings come out and that they result in societies that are democratic, that are producing a better life for their people, and we should do everything we can in a smart way recognizing we're not so popular in the middle east right now to try to help get that outcome. there are a couple big threats to that. one is syria, and i'm more worried about syria in term

displayed in the face of what were initially peaceful protests. obviously, the situation in syria's deteriorated since then. we have been extensively engaged with the international community, as well as regional powers, to help the opposition. we have committed to hundreds of millions of dollars of humanitarian aid to help folks both inside of syria and outside of syria. we are constantly consulting with the opposition on how they can get organized so that they're not splintered and divided in the face of the onslaught from the assad regime. we are in very close contact with countries like turkey and jordan that immediately border syria and have an impact. obviously, israel which is having already a grave concerns as we do about, for example, movements of chemical weapons that might occur in such a chaotic atmosphere and that could have an impact not just within syria but on the region as a whole. i'm encouraging to see that the syrian opposition created an umbrella group that may have more cohesion than they have had in the past. we're going to be talking to them. my enjoys will
something they can't take copies with them. >> bret: syria's president says he is not going anywhere. bashar assad is vowing to stay in syria, despite western calls for his departure. in the midst of the syria bloody civil war. correspondent leland vittert has that story from jerusalem. >> incoming missiles and the explosions reverberate around the capital but the rebels can now fire back at the regime. this uncomfortable amateur video shows rebels firing mortals toward what they claim as assad's palaces. in a rare interview broadcast on russian television assad remained defiant. >> many of president assad's seasonals are dying. rebels assault the government barracks in coordinated attac attacks. the video show the government troops who don't die in the battle are executed either in groups or shot in the street. president assad warned the world against coming after him. >> i think if this happened going -- [ inaudible ] >> tough words come as turkey floated the idea deploying american made patriot anti-aircraft missiles along the syrian border to create a safe zone of sorts where zillians an

uncertainty with egypt, uncertainty on its border with jordan, civil war in syria, probl problems with hezbollah and lebanon. not to mention iran. there's no port in the storm. this is now the new middle east. >> and richard, doesn't that make syria all the more important, you know, golan heights took mortar fire from syria, israel really doesn't want to get involved. you know, spread itself thin in syria, and i think that's why international action on syria is so important right now. >> it's one of the fault lines in the middle east. i think if you're an israeli, it's not the one at the moment that keeps you up at night the most. >> right. >> i still think the palestinian is the closest. then you've got egypt which is the anchor of israel's security. and i think actually the israelis are most worried about jordan. the israelis are not central to the dynamic in syria. syria which began as a civil war and spread into the proxy has the potential to become a regional war. just when the thought the middle east can get worse, it can. >> what's your assessment of pretty much the fact th
their airspace to rearm syria's president in his fight against the rebels. leland vittert has been on this story now. he joins us live from jerusalem. leland, what do we know here? >> reporter: martha, it is no secret that iran wants to keep president bashar assad in power there in syria but they're becoming increasingly sneaky how they are getting him weapons, ammunition, other things to continue the fight against his own people. western intelligence sources confirm this video shows cargo planes that have landed from iran inside syria flown by iraqi airspace. despite very intense u.s. pressure to stop those flights. they land. they off-load and the people you are watching our sources tell us are iran revolutionary guard corps members helping the syrian regime. according to our sources the revolutionary guard used all media attention that happened in gaza, no one is talking about syria for two weeks to increase the flights significantly and continue to supply president assad because they say he is running out of ammunition, especially artillery shells for being able to hit syrian cities. what we
years during this war the syrian air force has controlled the skies over syria. they have pounded rebel positions, killing civilians and rebel fighters. throughout the course of this nearly two-year long conflict. it is one of the key reasons the assad regime is still in power. something seems to be changing in syria because the last 24 hours rebels shot down two syrian aircraft. one hell copper and one jet plane. now in the past the rebels have been able to shoot down helicopters but this is the first time they shot down a jet plane and there are reports rebels have access to some type of new anti-aircraft weapon. possibly shoulder to air missile. it is not clear where they got it from or how many they have. some speculation may be that they confiscated it from the syrian military when they took over syrian bases in northern syria. it is also possible that outside countries like qatar or turkey actually supplied these weapons to the syrian rebels especially since it takes some training and some practice to fire a missile and take a plane out of the air. there is some speculation this i

is doing any good, it's not perceptible. megyn: what about syria? we've lost our focus on it in the recent weeks and months with the election, but they are involved in a civil war now, and it was said that bashar assad was about to go. well, he hasn't gone, and, you know, thousands upon thousands of children are dying in syria, many being tortured in front of tear families, and the -- in front of their families, and the unite isn't doing that much. we tried to do something at the united nations, it failed. >> it failed in large measure because the chinese and russians -- with whom we were supposed to have hit the reset button, remember that? -- haven't allowed anything to get done. and this person who was supposed to be a superb diplomat hasn't mansioned to get -- managed to get that off square one. the united nations have sent an observer, and what they're observing is what you described. megyn: do you think another u.n. ambassador could have gotten something done? do you think if we had a john bolton, for example, they could have convinced russia to go against syria? do you think so? >>
are infinitely more engaged right now but the coverage of what's happening in syria isn't bad but i don't know that it showed a great deal of light, and part of the problem is even though he were asking about -- i know you began by asking about what is happening, and what i think of the coverage of that today. any time israel is involved in the story it becomes an increase do it excruciatingly difficult story for american journalists to cover because there is for the most part a natural sympathy in this country. a sense of identity in this country and many reporters both friends and colleagues of mine, the late peter jennings used to road defeat to write and be criticized for taking an anti-israeli point of view not so much that he had spent many years living in the arab world and had a sympathetic point of view to arabs. i fink what is happening in gaza means almost any definition of tragedy. they cannot be expected on the one hand to stand by while their cities are rocketed. on the other hand, the great irony of the paradox of that story is because the israeli defense forces are infinitely m
: a new report that iran is sending weapons and supplies to help the regime in syria. iraq is allowing iran to fly the convoys through the air space. leland vittert joins us live in jerusalem. how is this working? >> reporter: essentially what is going on here, general ace the iranians want some way to get weapons, ammunition and men over to the syrian regime. they can't fly north through turkey, they are flying through iraq that is despite the u.s. asking iraq to close down air space to these kinds of flights. this is video that's been confirmed to fox news by western intelligence sources showing iranian revolutionary guard troops getting off of cargo troops that view via iraqi air space inside syria to join the fight. it's no secret that iran is trying very hard to help president bashar al-assad. it's most interesting how they are getting increasingly sneaky about how they are getting him his weapons and ammunition and those kinds of things. the issue here is that over the past couple of months the u.s. put a lot of pressure on iraq to shut the flights down. what they are doing now i
with the potential ground war floor takes many resources from one is going on with syria and iran. the role of syria is very important for the united states. >> you mentioned other countries and this could spill over the borders and extent. beyond israel and gaza >> syria is occupied with itself and iran. is also workiworried but if we are looking at any ground war in complicates our relationship with the world because for must su support israel and we will support israel. however that set terms out in terms of the rest of the persian gulf is something that we worry about. it is pins and needles with that is the price we pay and willing to pay for our relationship with israel. >> thank you, michael. you can follow him on twitter... his website michael yaki.com also have democrats and republicans talking to the president did they make any progress? coming up. gabe slate tech report a sneak peak after the new wii u call if revolutionizes caningaming. >> if you are behaving badly it is probably not a good idea to put a flag up in the next edition of people behaving badly. a special message from at&t.

this morning in syria, a fighter jet bombed a part of syria today near the turkish border. the force of it shattered windows. this comes as there's word that there's a new opposition leader being formed, under pressure from the international community. >> it appears congress may be ready to tackle immigration reform. charms shumer/schumer of new york says he and lindsey graham of south carolina are going to restart talks shelfed two years ago. charles schumer says being antiimmigrant does not work for him politically. >>> and in san francisco, the race for the district supervisor seat remains too close to call. through six rounds of voting, norman yee has 11,945. labor deed leader -- leader crowley has 11,924. that's a difference of just 21 votes. election workers say there are 3,000 provisional ballots to count. >>> we're hearing that some people who registered to vote at dmv offices found themselves not able to vote. the federal motor voter law enacted in 1995 requires the dmv to offer people the ability to vote. >>> a memorial will be scheduled held for david beanie will be sold -

sectarianism now coming out of syria and bahrain. saw a survey showing there's higher numbers of egyptians who say shia shouldn't be considered real muslims than there are in iraq, and iraq just went through a sectarian civil war, and most egyptians have probably never seen a shia in their life. so sectarianism, those kinds of things, are also being spread through, through these media channels. >> yeah. i think on, you know, the unification issue, um, i agree that there's diversity, and you will find, you know, libya, tunisia, everywhere else will be focused on issues. only about a third across the board identify with this state as the first choice of identity. and most still identify themselves either muslim or arab first. really it's muslim arab. so you've got, in essence, you know, when you even ask them should the state serve the interests of its citizens or the interest of arabs or muslims, you have a large chunk saying the interest of arabs and muslims, so there is a sense of connectedness even as they focus on the issue. but politically, we're focused on public opinion, this is a revolu
this morning, chaos spreading in the area of syria, they are spreading for a second day near the border of turkey. we are told at least one person has died. yesterday 20 more people were killed in air strikes in this same area. the violence has killed more than 36,000 people since the uprising in march of last year. >>> and now in washington state, they will try for a second time to reach two snowboarders. the bad weather forced the rescuers to back off. these snowboarders became lost as they were coming down from a storm. park officials say they were able to build a snow cave to get shelter from the cold. >>> they are hoping to put pressure on lawmakers and avoid this so called fiscal cliff. and in washingtond.c. newsroom, here is the campaign, jacqueline? >>> they want the president to come up with a measure he sees fit. he is kicking off meetings centering around the problems facing the nation. spending cuts will go into effect at the beginning of the year unless congress acts. they want lawmakers to raise taxes on the wealthy and tomorrow the president will meet with business execut

, but neither do i see it as very helpful in pressing russia on issues like iran or their conduct towards syria. russian opposition level leaders, however, and russian civil society, and the russian press, what free press remains in russia today really support this legislation. and i think what this legislation intends is sort of a mutually beneficial relationship with russia based on a rule of law. based on human rights. that's the hope. it includes the sergei magnitsky legislation that came out of the foreign affairs committee of which i am an original co-sponsor, and i do think we owe a debt of gratitude to chairman ros-lehtinen for her determination to have that provision in the legislation. and i think if we reflect on the words of the russian opposition in their parliament, one said recently, this provision is very pro-russian. it helps defend us in russia from criminals. it helps defend us from criminals who kill our citizens, who steal our money, and hide it abroad. and that's the point. that's what we are trying to do with that provision. and this bill liberalizing trade while at the s

: but the reality the president is facing, you have got the crisis in syria. iran moving closer to getting nuclear weapons. the middle east is a tinder box. a big challenge for this white house. martha: congress vowing to investigate how cia talking points about the attack on the american consulate in benghazi were changed before being made public. general petraeus reportedly told congress that the reference to al qaeda somehow wasn't there inmore in the final version but he doesn't know what happened. top republicans are calling this a watergate-level coverup. >> the narrative was wrong and the intelligence was right. >> we are going to find out who made changes in the original statement. until we do, i think it's unwarranted to make accusations. martha: peter king, chairman of the house security committee. dianne feinstein says we are going to find out who made that change, do you think we are? >> we have to. it shouldn't be the only dpaition of -- shouldn't be the obligation of congress. i don't know why the administration didn't come forward and say these changes were made and why. the longer
unrest in syria, in iran, in the region generally, i think this. during this fight the united states needs to signal that we are going to be with israel and going to be a strong ally from the outset and throughout whatever difficulties may arise. martha: anyone who has watched the situation knows there has about in the past been tensions between benjamin netanyahu and president obama. is that perhaps why hillary is the one to go or is it too early for presidential involvement. >> i think it's too early. she is there to set the stage for things likely to come. we saw the president come out and issue a rather trapbg statemenstatement of support for israel. the increase in the amount of rocket fire coming from gaza, you had hillary clinton now set to meet with benjamin netanyahu, i think trying to do two things, basically, the first she wants to avoid a ground war. i think the united states government doesn't want to see this progress or escalate. second, i think she is trying to buy the united states a little wiggle room and flexibility when it comes to the bigger issue of iran and mi
there in cairo. martha: so much turmoil in that area. there are also new reports of violence rocking syria today. this is brand-new video of the aftermath. look at this. four explosions went off in a suburb near the syrian capitol. at least 56 people dead in those explosions, dozens more are injured. several homes and buildings were destroyed. the blast reportedly caused by two bobby trapped cars and two other explosive devices. no group has claimed responsibility in this. syrian police say that it has the trademarks of an al-qaida-affiliated organization. >> another alert right now on the floor of the u.s. senate. senate minority leader republican mitch mcconnell saying that raising tax rates in this economy is the last thing that the government should do in america. here is senator mcconnell just moments ago. have a listen. >> the only reason democrats are insisting on raising rates is because raising rates on the so-called rich is the holy grail of liberalism. their aim isn't job creation, they are interested in wealth destruction. bill: part of the reason why this is getting so much attentio

. disagreements like that over words and phrases are not unusual in politics. syria's president insists the country is not engaged in zil war. instead, bashar assad tells russian tv he is fighting terrorism through proxxys. iran said it fired in predator drone after crossing to the u.s. air space. aircraft was 60 miles off dost when it was attacked. israel defense minister says iran slowed iranian enrichment timetable to push back the ability to make the nuclear weapons by eight months. the nuclear agency says it will meet with iranians officials next month to restart stalled negotiations. obama administration is dismissing the stories that long-time domestic policy advisor valerie jarret is rung point on evident to get iran back to the table. senior white house foreign affairs correspondent wendell goler reports. >> both the white house and the state department deny claims that president obama senior advisor jarret is conducting back channel negotiations with iran over the country nuclear program. fueled by papers and bloggers, some u.s. media outlets note jarret was born in iran to am
